We Spoke at HCMF

Creative Tourist

We Spoke at Phipps Hall, Huddersfield 21 November 2019 Entrance is free — Visit now

The last time We Spoke came to hcmf//, they spent half a concert locked in combat with several dozen plastic bags. Doesn’t it ultimately make a lot of sense that they’ll open their concert at this year’s festival by moving around cardboard? Along with performing Termite Territory, a new work by familiar face Hanna Hartman, the ensemble will perform a series of musical games, accepting challenges and then doing battle with them. Expect everything from chess boards to electronic helmets – the kind of things We Spoke love to go apoplectic over.
